Former India pacer, S Sreesanth has recently taken a dig at Gautam Gambhir’s remark on Dhoni sacrificing for the good of the team.

Previously, Gambhir had stated that Dhoni could’ve achieved a lot had he not been a captain and would also have batted at No.3 in ODIs for India.

However, Sreesanth has commented that Dhoni cared more for the team than his batting achievements.

Additionally, he also says that Dhoni was the best finisher in cricket and has two World Cup wins as skipper.

Gautam bhai said recently that Dhoni would have scored more runs had he batted at No.3. But for Dhoni, it was always more about victories than more runs. He always had the ability to finish games when the team needed him and he won two World Cups as well.

Furthermore, Sreesanth has also rated MS Dhoni as India’s finest wicketkeeper-batter and said that the latter didn’t give up on his batting position ever.

Additionally, he also says that Dhoni knew how to get the best out of his men.

Credit should go to Dhoni, but he didn’t sacrifice his batting position. He worked a way to find out which players would do well for the team in which position and then slot them in those positions accordingly. His captaincy had the ability to bring the best out of his players. He has always thought about the team first.

Notably, Dhoni is still considered one of India’s finest captains to date. He was named skipper in September 2007 and straightaway gave India their maiden ICC T20 World Cup title.

After that, he gave India the ICC ODI World Cup in 2011 after a gap of 28 years and then finally the Champions Trophy in 2013.

He is the only Indian captain to have won all three ICC trophies for India.

Meanwhile, India’s semi-final loss against New Zealand in the 2019 ODI World Cup was the last international appearance for Dhoni.

He hung up his boots from international cricket in 2020.
